Adam Lambert: ‘Heavy hearted’ over slaying of fan on Long Island – The British woman who was killed in Great Neck last week was a big fan of former “American Idol” singer Adam Lambert and was reportedly in New York to see him in concert.

Glam Rocker Adam Lambert Picks Up Sunset Strip Contemporary (EXCLUSIVE) – Glam rocker Adam Lambert substantially zhuzhed up his already pretty snazzy residential circumstances with the $6.5 million purchase of an awkwardly massed but sleekly finished and vaguely Prairie-style contemporary residence perched conveniently just above L.A.’s dream-stained and ever-chic Sunset Strip. High end property market watchers will note the sale price was not only an eye-catching 18% less than the original $7.888 million asking price and nearly half of a million dollars under the final price tag of almost $7 million but $300,000 short of the amount the seller — a corporate entity tied to Avril Lavigne’s current beau Phillip Sarofim, heir to a billion dollar plus Texas energy fortune — paid for the then brand spanking new house in February 2017. With up to five bedrooms and six bathrooms, the 5,028-square-foot, triple-story abode sits securely if not invisibly behind double driveway gates on a slightly more than a quarter acre street-to-street lot with a long and glittery, tree-framed city lights view from the upper level. – Read more at Variety

Cody Alan’s Baby And CMA Talk With Carrie Underwood – Gender reveals are entertaining for everyone and the last time that Underwood was pregnant, she hosted the 2014 CMA Awards alongside Brad Paisley. The baby’s gender was announced during one of the duo’s bantering comedy bits and we were all stunned by Paisley’s deadpanned comment, “You could name him Garth!” So, will that happen again this year? Should we expect a little “Garth” or “Garthette”? Will we really have to wait until November to find out? Was Underwood’s very PINK Instagram baby announcement a hint? Here is what she told CMT’s Cody Alan. – Listen to the interview at CMTCody

Interview with singer/songwriter MacKenzie Bourg – We would like to know the creative process that went behind making the song. Also, can we expect a music video? I did “Playlove” with The Monarch and Rollo Spreckley. We actually had started on a completely different song that day and then after about an hour started over and came up with the single in about an hour. Weird how that happens sometimes! And YES! The music video is so cool. Chase Tarca and I shot it in Joshua Tree just the two of us. Can’t wait to release it. – Read more at Celebmix
